This was the weapon they issued to their riflemen who escorted machinegun companies, and it used the same ammunition that fed their machineguns. It was also used against low-flying aircraft; it had side-bars on the rear sights so that you could lead the target aircraft. But here is the neat thing about this rifle. It can hit a small bullseye at 100 yards with no elevation. The bullet does not drop at all over that distance. A totally amazing rifle for that day and time.

    Mind the year though and if It was proofed by the U.S.....prior to 1943 they were very good...after; they were very bad.

    Good point TomO, I was told by an old gunsmith that the rifle I had was built in approx 1940-41 for a sniper application? I was to young when I had it and didn't really appreciate what it was until after I got rid of it.

    Yep....If that's the case then it was built like a tank. Stronger than most Allied rifles.

    I have two uppers and one lower. I originaly bought it with A2 sights because they are simple and I know how to use it. Then I bought an upper with the flat top, and put an EOTech on it. I want a lower for the A2 upper.

    But I would also like one of these. The description says it is a 1980 model.

    I could get a class 3 lower that is tranferable. The lower on any AR15 variant is what defines it of course. 3 shot select fire. But I don't want to pay that stupid price, so I will settle for semi-auto.

    And to answer the question directly, I am new to it. I think it works exactly as they designed. The EOTech. You shoot with both eyes open, greatly reducing long term strain. It is ideal for those that kick in doors, or shooters on a PSD.

    Yes, for Cruciform's convenience, I've lined my nose up to the red dot.
